Question by Evelyn: My wedding idea keeps changing!!!?
I always thought I'd have a big summer wedding. My fiance is polynesian and he has a HUGE family so we'd go with a tropical theme, everyone at the reception would get leis, the girls in his family would do a polynesian dance for us and my family would get to see what his culture is all about. It just seems more "us." This wedding would cost a little more so we'd have to have it in summer of 2012 or later.
But our 5 year anniversary is in December and I'd love to get married on that day because it's a milestone! We also love winter! If we did it in the winter, we'd only have about 20 guests (parents, siblings and their spouses.) Mainly because it's so close to Christmas and I know most people hate weddings that time of year. And also to save money...it's only 11 months away. I still have a year and a half of college so money is TIGHT. But I have so many ideas for a winter wedding! There is this amazing restaurant around here that has a winter themed private dining room. You walk in and feel like you're in a winter wonderland, and it looks so unique and glamorous at the same time! They also have a s'mores dessert you can order...it comes with this plate thing of fire and you roast marshmellows on it! It's perfect for me because growing up, my sister and I always made s'mores using the fireplace or a candle haha and I made my fiance try his first smore! Our wedding cake could be red velvet. And for the favors we can get personalized Christmas tree ornaments that have our names and wedding date on them! We could put them in little wrapped boxes that look like presents..perfect! Oh and we could also have a white horse drawn carriage, that would go perfect for a winter theme. This option is so much cheaper. But we're afraid that some of his family would be mad at us.
I'm so sick of waiting..5 years is long enough! And while a small wedding seems sweet, I do like the idea of having both of our entire families together sharing the most important day of our lives with us. But it seems crazy to spend thousands of dollars on ONE night when I can spend half that on a wedding that's just a beautiful. I'm so confused!!!!! Did anyone regret having a small wedding?
Answer by trish s
Have you asked what your man would like ? Personally i'm in favour of small simple weddings saving the money for the future together. Getting married is about two people who want to spend their lives together. Not about big lavish ceremonies with frilly lace and expensive venues and food..............
